What's so good?

Natasha Kmeto is like nothing else you've listened to yet; I can promise you that. The NorCal-bred producer combines grimy beats with atmospheric vocals to serve up a quality slice of contemporary electronic soul that'll remind you of TOKiMONSTA. More "Bright Shadow" than "Moving Forward," woozy beats best described as "futuristic soul."

Seems like the electronic soul scene just continues to grow and grow, but I can't pin down whether it's what soul has ended up sounding like today, or rather some weird homage to days past in our own hip style. I thought FACT summed up that odd intersection Kmeto is stuck at pretty well...

"Natasha Kmeto is another artist who is either "” depending on your perspective "” exploring the soulful side of electronic music or the digital side of soul music."


Kmeto's a Portland-based singer/producer who combines a talent behind the boards with a gorgeous voice. Apparently her live show has been described as a "thinking-person's visceral dance party which reaches levels of energy so high Natasha herself comes out to join her audience on the dance floor." Sounds like my kind of party.

If you're in the Portland area, I highly recommend you keep your eyes out for upcoming performances on her website. Luckily she just recently dropped a new EP, so you can enjoy all the R&B/bass sounds you like on Bandcamp. Pro tip: "Pleasure Delay" will mutilate your speakers. Perfect for your own thinking-person's visceral dance party. God, I love that description...
